Eco-Friendly, recyclable and biodegradable travel utensils!
We live in an era where being good stewards of the Earth is more important than ever. Hence, recycling and refusing plastic is the best thing that you can do to help minimize waste and keep our planet green.
We also live in a time where germs are rampant, an aggressive virus has spread worldwide, and not all restaurants and fast food establishments are as clean as we would like them to be.
So what can we do to keep ourselves safe while eating out and maintaining a green lifestyle? By using our own environmentally friendly travel utensils!
Why Are Travel Utensils Important?
In the last few years, more and more people have jumped aboard the reusable straw train. That’s amazing! But, we don’t hear enough about reusable and portable silverware, which is also important to have on hand.
One of the biggest benefits to portable utensils is convenience. Not only can you use them just about anywhere, but you’re also avoiding plastic cutlery.

And many, if not all, portable sets come with a full spectrum of utensils consisting of: a spoon, fork, knife, reusable straws (with cleaning brushes), toothbrushes, and chopsticks!
